    $1,000 makes you a Tanzania multi millionaire these days. You feel rich walking out of a bank with all the money you need for a month but of course you don't have enough pockets to carry all the bills.

    I ask my wife if she ever thought we would be so successful in life that we could spend all the millions we do in a month in Tanzania. She just rolls her eyes.

    .....as I said before, I'm building a 9.3x74R on a P14 action and I was hoping you might be able to supply me with some dimensions of the barrel on yours.

    Cheers

    Hi sorry but I haven't a clue. It's in storage at a dealer as the house his mother is renting doesn't have facilities to securely store Guns and he is away at college at the moment. And I am bit far away to go look
